Explore the power of face-to face-meetings 

Event design starts with your audience. On the surface, it would seem we are an industry and a community populated by “people persons”. In fact, human beings encompass different personality types, across several dimensions. But we are united by a common interest: to come together face to face.

We’ve gathered the latest industry research and discussions around meeting face-to-face, personality types, addressing re-entry anxiety and the healing power of our breath. As we work to create human-centric event experiences, discover how we design events around our human nature.

In this report we take a deep dive into our human nature, asking who we are post-pandemic, what we learned about ourselves, and how we can reconnect ‘in real life,’ in the healthiest and happiest of ways. Download the report now!

"In a business context, meeting face-to-face outperforms meeting virtually in so many different areas."
